Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Thriller - This is a very dark and twisted psychological thriller aimed at adult audiences. Fans of all the actors, especially lead Natalie Portman, and director Darren Aronofsky will have plenty to savor here. Language and strong sexual and violent content make the film inappropriate for children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good The look and feel of Black Swan, which captures the essence of a major New York ballet production, is one of Aronofsky's great successes.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good "Black Swan” has a beauty. All of the themes of the music and life, all of the parallels of story and ballet, all of the confusion of reality and dream come together in a grand exhilaration of towering passion.

USA Today Full Review
Excellent To induce a state of dread and mesmerize with beauty is a rare, paradoxical achievement.

All the reviews are about the same in each group. Most enjoyed it very much, with quite a few loving it. However, many only rated it average or hated it.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Nina (Natalie Portman), a ballerina in a New York City ballet company whose life, like all those in her profession, is completely consumed with dance. She lives with her retired ballerina mother Erica (Barbara Hershey) who zealously supports her daughter's professional ambition. When artistic director Thomas Leroy (Vincent Cassel) decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre (Winona Ryder) for the opening production of their new season, Swan Lake, Nina is his first choice. But Nina has competition: a new dancer, Lily (Mila Kunis), who impresses Leroy as well. Swan Lake requires a dancer who can play both the White Swan with innocence and grace, and the Black Swan, who represents guile and sensuality. Nina fits the White Swan role perfectly but Lily is the personification of the Black Swan. As the two young dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship, Nina begins to get more in touch with her dark side with a recklessness that threatens to destroy her.
